This is the hanbali madhab
In their article (islamqa) they say that the
"The scholars of the Permanent Committee (5/364) were asked: Many people use luxury carpets in their homes. If a child of any age, for example, urinates on the carpet, is it sufficient to pour water on it in order to cleanse it of the impurity, seeing that the carpet may be large ...
This is jurisprudence not aqeedah. إنسان الماء (water human) is a creature which is mentioned in the rulings of food by jurists while their existence is neither confirmed nor denied in Islamic beliefs from the Quran or ahadith.

It depends on what exactly the person says and means by his words.
If he knowingly denies a verse of the Quran or invents an interpretation that goes against what is apparent and held by consensus then he is a disbeliever, because among the things which nullify a person's Islam are:

You have not sinned for the act that you didn't know of. As the above answer quotes Quran 33:5 , it says it all. There is also a Hadith to prove this:

Ruling on prisoners:
Regarding prisoners, the stance of the majority including the four madhabs is that caliph has the right to do with prisoners according to what suits the interest of the Muslims and he has the right between effecting on them execution, enslavement, ransom or release. Just as your citation states:
The majority of the jurists maintained ...
I asked this question to the imam of my mosque and he said that there are no specifications about the size of the knife. Although it is recommended the knife should be sharp enough so that the animal could be sacrificed easily without giving him/her much pain.
The report comes from a work known as "al-Musannaf" compiled by Ibn Abi Shaiba (d. 235/850) (ed. Dar al-Faruq, Cairo. Edited by Abu Muhammad Usama)

If anyone's sperm goes inside the woman (except her husband) then this is haram. As touching, talking and even gazing any Na-Mehram is haram let alone putting sperms in her (by any means).

The prohibition is on tying up an animal and then using it as a target for archery etc. It is not about tying up cattle to manage them which is a common practice and is acceptable as long as you feed them.
